Physical life quality factors Physical safety and hygiene Physical safety ensures that the patients in the nursing home are safe and cared for so they will not get hurt. Good hygiene makes sure that the patients will have a reduced risk of having an infection. This is very important physical life quality factor within a nursing home as some disabled patients or unable may get injured easily rather than the able patients. The nurses must make sure that some of them are looking after the disabled patients at all times. The nurses may make sure that no patients have split any coffee in the lounge as the disabled patients may slip over and hurt themselves if the liquid is not mopped up.
In volunteering with the dog department I gave care by spending time by petting, playing with them in their doggie “condos” (space). In addition I gave them a few treats, walks and made sure their environment was clean. I feel that taking these actions not only helped the staff at the shelter to make their lives easier, but specifically the dogs themselves. I helped the dogs not only directly by giving them essentials and more that they should have, but also indirectly. By caring for them it helps improve their behavior and ensures that they will be ready to adopt to find a suitable and hopefully permanent home, where they will have a pleasurable lifestyle.

The cacti remind Tiggy of her failed relationship with her and her ex-husband. Tiggy Entwhistle, who has found comfort in her succulents, wishes her husband loved her half as much as the cacti do. “And in the midst of my personal troubles, of which quite a few of you are aware, I can only stress that my cacti have played an essential part in holding me together.” This quote demonstrates how much Tiggy relies on her cacti to keep her stable. To her, the cacti are just like pets, expect they don’t move or make any noise, and that is exactly why Tiggy has fallen in love with them. “We regard the cactus as a plant which struggles to survive in a hostile environment, and it is this notion of proud undaunted struggle which enhances its appeal.
Care for children Task 1: 1. Describe the environment you would provide for rest time: The environment I would provide for rest time would be in a well-ventilated room as closed stuffy rooms increase the risk of cross infection and impair health.
